Production has started for Shudder’s series “CreepShow” inspired of the classic Horror Movie of the same name. AMC Network (Shudder’s Parent Company) made and announcement regarding the series to the press at their TCA event, stating that production has started and will have Greg Nicotero (SFX supervisor for The Walking Dead) directing! It included a statement from Nicotero himself:

Greg Nicotero with a Zombie

“Having the opportunity to embrace the spirit of Creepshow and expand on what George [Romero] and Stephen [King] created is, without a doubt, a lifelong dream come true. Having grown up in Pittsburgh, Creepshow lives in a special place for me. I had the good fortune to visit the set as a teenager. I was able to look behind the curtain of filmmaking, and it changed me forever. I’m honored to continue telling the stories in the ‘comic book come to life’ world that fans fell in love with. This fall we will be ‘opening the coffin’ and unleashing upon the world our demented and ghastly stories, crafted by the best in business.”

With the announcement it was also revealed that it would be a six-episode series in total and the following segments titles and creators have been revealed:

“By the Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill (NOS4A2) 
“House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box) 
“The Companion” by Joe Lansdale (The Bottoms) 
“The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman (The Lesser Dead) 
“All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones (The Hitchhiker) 
“Night of the Paw” by John Esposito (The Walking Dead: Webisodes) 
“Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab (Monster House) Additional stories, cast, directors and a segment by Stephen King himself has yet to be revealed! So now is the perfect time to renew/subscribe to Shudder for this series alone!
